What is Somatics?

What is Somatics?

Somatic Movement Education is a non-manipulative, self-healing practise where through slow mindful movement people of all ages can free themselves from chronic pain, habituated postures and physical and emotional trauma.  Creating calm within the mind and more freedom of movement and flexibility within the body. 

This beautiful healing modality is a neuromuscular re-education and movement awareness practise that guides us to release unconscious muscular contraction and holding patterns creating space for holistic physical and emotional healing.

Gentle yet powerful somatics enables root cause issues to unravel as we use our own brain, our own consciousness connecting with our central nervous system.

In somatics we call the body the soma; soma is an ancient Greek word meaning 'wholeness' we are living, breathing, ever evolving miracles of movement and so much more than just skin and bone, we hold innate wisdom and the capacity to to heal.

When we connect deeply to the miracle of our being, we can eliminate pain that is holding us back from doing what we want to do in this very short and precious life.

Somatics can be taught as a one-on-one hand on session or as a movement lesson in person or online to an individual or in a group setting, empowering people of all ages to release back pain & injury, neck and pain, sciatica, whiplash, frozen shoulder, RSI (repetitive strain injury), MS (multiple sclerosis), any kind of muscular or nerve pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, depression and much more.

Somatics isn't just a movement awareness practise. Somatics is its own movement. An act of rebellion in a world that wants to keep us distracted. Somatic movement education brings us home to ourselves, home to our heart, enabling us to feel more aligned with our own source energy. There is no greater healer than thyself, and when we heal ourselves we help in the healing of everyone and everything around us.
